Help me find a duvet cover

I bought this duvet cover from West Elm about 5 years ago. As you can see, I got bleach on it today. :( Can you help me locate something similar? West Elm doesn’t appear to carry it anymore. Suggestions for other duvet covers are welcomed too. I like the yellow!

I am so done with this chest freezer.

Having previously asked about how to reform my chest freezer so I didn't hate it to death and implemented some of your suggestions, I have decided I can't take it anymore and I have to buy an upright. Lowes, Home Depot, Sears, and all the local appliance stores are out of stock. Sears won't have what I want until September. It seems unlikely that anyone is going to ship me a freezer that I order online. Am I just shit out of luck?

Is there a service that will buy and ship bakery items for me?

I've been missing Miami's Cuban bakeries. My plans to visit have been put on hold indefinitely, so I'm looking for options to have a few items (cuban crackers, cuban bread and pastries) shipped overnight to my house a few states to the north. Does a service that does this exist? [more inside]

Need websites selling various quantities of screws/bolts/nuts/washers

Looking for websites offering wide selections of screws/nuts/bolts/washers, where I can choose various smaller quantities, like 25/50/100 of each item. I have checked out the main ones (mcmaster/fastenal/grainger), but those ones are expensive. I'm hoping to find out about others where I can choose these quantities and are much less expensive. Thanks.

Ethical dilemma - eBay item supplied as "gift" via Amazon. Now what?

Seems that this eBay seller doesn't actually keep any stock. Instead when you purchase on eBay, they use their personal Prime account to buy a cheaper item through Amazon and send it free. Against eBay's TOS. I use eBay to avoid Amazon, so was annoyed to receiving this "gift" (no return details or invoice) this morning. Left neutral feedback. Now they're trying to bribe me to remove it. What to do? [more inside]

Recommendations for customized posters?

I want to buy a poster--a physical, hang-on-the-wall poster, with a specific phrase on it. I have no artistic ability, so what I'm really hoping for is some sort of service where there are designs with 'YOUR PHRASE HERE' options,. Somehow, I can't find anything like this. It must exist, right? Can you point me to it?

Where are you buying your fabric online in these unprecedented times?

Difficulty: Canada. I've been taking this opportunity to improve my sewing skills by making masks (just for myself so far as they are very bad) with old pillow cases and random pieces of fabric I have around. Recently I found a place with elastic in stock and ordered a bunch! But now I need to buy more fabric and I'm having trouble. [more inside]
